Chronic Headaches

Wednesday, August 28, 2013

I've been having a headache every single day for about two weeks now. It started off as a tension headache in the back of my head, but for the past week or so, it's been on the top of my head, from temple to temple. It feels like my head is being squashed. I went to bed last night at 6:40 and slept until 2am. I got up and used the bathroom, tossed and turned a bit until about 4, then fell back asleep until my alarm went off at 6. That's still 10 hours of sleep. I still felt tired all day. I just don't get this headache at all. Sometimes it's just a dull ache, but then other times it's awful. But it's not a migraine, either. (I get those and KNOW when I have a migraine). It's starting to make me feel kind of worn out and sad. I'm not going to the gym, either. It's taking all of my strength and energy to just get through the work day. I'm doing a pretty good job with my eating though, and I'm doing little things like parking farther away from doors, taking the long way around when I'm going somewhere, keeping busy in my classroom and around my house, etc. I'm trying to keep moving a little more since my head hurts so bad that it makes me not want to workout. I thought the other day about maybe putting myself through a detox. I wonder if I'm having this headache because I haven't been eating well lately -- you are what you eat. I need to detox anyway. I'm scared though. I will get my students on Wednesday of next week and I really don't want to be feeling like hammered $hit while I'm trying to adjust to a new roomful of kidlets. I need to plan to do this though, and soon. I have GOT to make some serious changes. Now.
